Actually, I do care about users and that's the *reason* documentation
does only pop up in *one* place, that's /documentation/

If somebody comes up with a real problem, that's fine with me. But
please consider that if we open ter_fe for docs only because of some
mis-categorization of extension XYZ, we will clutter the ter_fe with
lots of extensions that extend nothing, have no actual code, cannot
seriously be rated etc. pp. That's a lot of drawbacks for which I am not
willing to take the blame.

Again, I think that given that categories work, having docs only in
/documentation is what 99,9 % of all people expect, as they don't care
how it is stored or processed on typo3.org.

A decision that was not made nor even endorsed by me. In fact, I still
think treating documentation as extensions is not-such-a-good idea.
